Hydroponically grown spinach plants were deprived of an external source of sulphate after an initial period when the S-supply was sufficient. The time-course of events following this treatment was monitored. The first responses were found in the uptake and translocation of NO(3)(-) and the uptake of SO(4)(2-). The former declined by approximately 50%, the(More)
In roots, nitrate assimilation is dependent upon a supply of reductant that is initially generated by oxidative metabolism including the pentose phosphate pathway (OPPP). The uptake of nitrite into the plastids and its subsequent reduction by nitrite reductase (NiR) and glutamate synthase (GOGAT) are potentially important control points that may affect(More)
